Time For love - Jack Burton - December 7, 2018

Inspired by the triumphs, failures, and emotions of immigrating from my lifelong home of Austin, Texas to Valencia, Spain. "Time for Love" is sly and mellow, featuring warm dobro guitar, vibraphone, and Hammond organ, that create a hopeful, longing mood, layered with male lead vocals narrating the power of love to overcome adversity. The first of many new songs I'll be releasing to promote as I travel and play music that spreads hope and love, reminding us to take care of each other no matter our differences.

Jack Burton | roots rock rambler

Forged in the fires of Austin, Texas’ diverse live music scene, and tempered by the cool Mediterranean waters of his move to Valencia Spain in 2016, Jack Burton has emerged a powerful and beloved singer and songwriter. His deep affinity for the musical heritage of the southern United States is unmistakable on his previously released EPs.  “I Think You Know” offers a high-energy live experience with the raw soulful power of Jack’s voice and deep pocket grooves of his stellar 9-piece “trio” with sexy grooves you can move to like “Green Eyed Girlie” and “Feel Alright” as well as a peek into the moodier side of Jack on “Falling Away.” Burton’s sophomore release, 2013’s “Soul” EP, is an earthy and uplifting mix of originals and gospel covers, loaded with heart and greasy southern grit. The album’s compelling vocals, swampy rhythms, and a seemingly endless supply of hooks and dirty guitar riffs brings a touch of nostalgia with his stirring versions of “Come On Children, Let’s Sing” and “Lord, Search My Heart” and confirms his worthiness to a place among the greats with originals like “Soul” and “Not What I Expected.”

After spending several years focused on live shows, Jack Burton is back in the studio to bring us new material that aims to shine a little light into the dark corners of personal struggle, the world’s troubles, acceptance, and experiences of life as a stranger in a new culture.  His highly anticipated single “Time for Love” is set to release December 7, and features warm dobro guitar, vibraphone, and Hammond organ, creating a hopeful, longing mood, layered with vocals narrating the power of love to overcome adversity.  Jack’s new project is an intriguing blend of gritty Alternative Blues and toe-tapping front porch Folk Rock, and “Time for Love” is the first of many new songs Jack will be releasing to promote as he travels Europe and spreads hope and love, reminding us to take care of each other no matter our differences.
